And check out the great photo of The Monkees from the Justus era, taken in Santa Monica, California in late 1996.
Hey, Hey We're The Monkees premiered on the Disney Channel in late January 1997. The documentary includes interviews with all four Monkees. It was later made available on VHS, but to date has never been released on DVD or Blu-ray.
The Monkees and their band performed "I'm a Believer" on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on June 17, 1996. Davy, Micky, and Peter spoke with Leno afterwards and announced the release of The Monkees' 1996 album, Justus.
On January 5, 1995, Micky, Davy, Michael, and Peter attended a ceremony at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood. The group's first five albums had been recertified as platinum and multi-platinum sellers by the Recording Industry Association of America, and The Monkees were presented with the awards by Rhino Records founder Harold Bronson. At the ceremony, it was announced that The Monkees and Rhino were committed to such projects like a new Monkees album, a feature film, and a 30th Anniversary reunion tour.
In early 1995, The Monkees attended a ceremony at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood that was hosted by Rhino Records. The first five Monkees albums had been re-certified by the RIAA for platinum and multi-platinum sales, and the group was presented with plaques to commemorate the occasion.
A big thanks to Tony White for submitting this photo of The Monkees during recording sessions for Justus.
Harold Bronson, who along with Richard Foos founded Rhino Records in 1978, has been a longtime supporter of The Monkees. Rhino began releasing Monkees compilations in the early 1980s and eventually moved to reissue the original Monkees albums starting in 1985. The company later acquired the group's music and film library from Columbia Pictures in the early 1990s from Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider. Despite Bronson's absence from the company since the early 2000s, Rhino has continued to treat the Monkees catalog with the utmost respect, issuing numerous box sets, rarities compilations, and more. In 2013, Bronson published The Rhino Records Story: Revenge of the Record Nerds. The photo above was taken at the 1995 platinum awards ceremony in Hollywood.
